Charles Bass (R-NH)
Politics is a family affair for Rep. Charles Bass (R-NH). Rep. Bass misused his position by seeking preferential treatment for his nephew’s business, a New Hampshire-based company that produces wood pellet fuel for use in heating systems.
Rep. Bass also appears to have lied on his personal financial disclosure forms about his interest in the company.
Rep. Bass is a seven-term member of Congress, representing New Hampshire’s 2nd congressional district. Rep. Bass represented the district from 1995 to 2007, and was elected again in 2010.
